Lazy Reading for 2015/08/09

There’s some meaty reading this week, so get settled in and start clicking.

Your unrelated comics link of the week: Cartozia Tales.  It’s a comics series where different comics artists start a story, then hands the story off to a different writer and artist for each issue after that.  I’ve been getting individual issues as they make them, and I want more people to subscribe, so they can get enough cash to print the last few issues.  (Independent comics is a hard business.)  Order the complete series, for yourself or as a unique present for a smaller person.

BSDNow T-Shirt

I missed this because it was only on the completely separate and rarely updated “News” section of the BSDNow site, but: they are selling a BSD shirt, for hitting the second year of production.  It is only available this month.  Proceeds go towards new equipment.  (noticed via)

(There’s no DragonFly on their shirt…  will they make a “The Unusual BSDs” shirt and put DragonFly on there?)

Terse link week!

BSDNow 100: Straight from the Src

I managed to be on the road and so did not post about the milestone 100th episode of BSDNow, which has an interview with Sebastian Wiedenroth about both pkg and pkgSrcCon, along with all their other news.

I’m glad to see 100 episodes together of a video podcast for BSD; if you had asked me a few years ago if that was possible, I’d have dismissed the idea.  Not for lack of news, obviously, but because I didn’t think anyone would have that level of dedication.  Investing time and care is what sets people apart, and they’ve done it.

Lazy Reading for 2015/08/02

Be ready for the latent craziness in some of the links for this Lazy Reading episode.

Your off-topic movie link of the week: The Fabulous World of Jules Verne.  (via an internet cult.)  Originally titled Invention For Destruction and released by a Czech director, then subtitled to English.  Looks like a strange mix of steampunk content and Monty Python-style animation.  That may seem only mildly interesting until you notice it was filmed in 1958.

It’s an unexpectedly diverse list this week.
